¡rREHAi-S:8! j LECTURE.—On Monday evening,fat Wesley Church, a highly-interesting lecture on Self- culture" was given by Mr. E. F. Kennard, of Cardiff University, to a fair attendance. Mr. j W. A.

Thomas, Treharris, preached telling sermons to fair congregations on each, day. SOCIAL.—On Saturday evening, at Bethania Vestry, a social was held in connection with the winding up for the season of the Young People's Mutual Improvement Society, Mr. D. Prosser, Thomwood, entertaining the members to tea. The tables were presided over by the following ladies:—Mrs. Evans (Brynglas), Mrs. Thomas (John-street), and Mrs. Thomas (Brynteg), assisted by Miss Jane Thomas, Miss Annie Thomas and others. Miss Mary Jones (Fox- street) and Migfl Edith Thomas (Bargoed- terrace), the secretary and treasurer respectively of the social, also assisted. Songs were given by Miss Minnie Francis and Mr. John Owen, accompanied by Miss P rite hard. Votes of thanks were accorded the Rev. J. P. Jones, the chairman of the society, to the vice-chairman, Mr. Hugh Roberts, to the accompanists, and all who had taken part during the session. Also to Mr. D. Prosser for his hospitality. ST. MATTHIAS' Easter Vestry was held on Thursday evening, in the Parish Hall. The Vicar (Rev. R. David) presided over a fair attendance. In his opening remarks on the Church's work during the past year, the I Vicar stated that, on the whole, fair progress i had been maintained. The number of teachers and scholars in the Sunday School showed an I increase, but he would like to see a further development of adult classes, especially for women. A new branch of the Church's work had been instituted in the Girls' Friendly Society, which had already done useful work among the young girls, and in which a keen interest was taken by all concerned. Four lectures had been given under the auspices of I the Church Defence League during the past session, and had proved both interesting and instructive. The executive committee—the ¡ cabinet of the church—had amply justified II' its existence, proving especially useful in regulating financial matters. He believed he I was correct in saying that this was the only I parish in the diocese which possessed such an institution. He also took that opportunity of welcoming the Rev. D. Morgan, who was recently appointed curate of the parish. He felt that in him the church had gained an earnest and zealous worker, a sentiment which was heartily endorsed by those present. There was a slight increase in the number of Easter communicants—220 Welsh and English at the Parish Church, and a total of 664 in the whole parish. The total contributions of the parish for the year amounted to £688. During the year the church had acquired half.an-acre of land from Col. Lockwood, as a vicarage site, on payment of half the legal expenses. The secretary read a statement of accounts, which showed receipts amounting to £148 9s. 9d., of which £127 18s. 5d. was the total of Sunday collections, and an expenditure of S120 13s. 3d. leaving a credit balance of f/l,7 16s. 6d. Liabili- ties now due, would, however, swallow up the greater part of this balance.—Mr.' Jackson reported that £242 had been raised during the past year towards reducing the debt on the Parish Hall, leaving a balance of about £300 still to be cleared. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to Mrs. Leigh for a donation of 6s. 5d. to this fund. The thanks of the Vestry were also conveyed to Mr. A. G. Durden, for his services in instituting a proper system of book-keeping for the various church accounts. The Vicar again nominated Capt. W. Dowdeswell as his warden, and Mr. Evan Morgan was unanimously re-appointed people's warden. Votes of thanks to the offioers, etc., of the church, and to the Vicar for presiding, brought a very interesting meeting to a close.
